HTSpor report Fenerbahçe are showing an interest in Manchester United midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger.

The 33-year old has been encouraged to look for a new club, although he seems determined to stick around at Manchester United. Fenerbahçe are believed to be looking for a midfielder who is good in possession and the former German captain could fit the bill.

It’s been claimed the player has been offered to Fenerbahçe by representatives, and the Turkish club will now assess the situation before making a decision.

Schweinsteiger’s high wages and recent injury record may be a concern for Fenerbahçe, but if he remains fit, he’d a be an excellent signing for Fenerbahçe.

Fenerbahçe and Manchester United have working lines of communication, having talked in recent years about the transfers of Robin van Persie and Nani.

It sounds like middlemen are trying to build an agreement which could then be presented to Schweinsteiger and Manchester United. The midfielder has made it clear he sees Old Trafford as his last football destination in Europe, it would take something special to change his mind.
